EDINBURGH: Pakistan all-rounder Faheem Ashraf said that he hoped that he will perform well against Scotland in tw-match T20 series.

In an interview, Ashraf said that during Ireland Test match his and Shadab Khan’s partnership worked for the team. “Our partnership was established when the team needed us as we played while keeping communication between us,” the all-rounder said, adding he and Shadab kept on pointing out the mistakes and kept the conversation light to reduce the pressure.

While talking about weather and training in Scotland, Ashraf said he hopes that weather will remain stable. “We have been training hard but rain is interrupting our schedule,” he stated.


He further said that the team is focusing on all aspects including batting, fielding, and bowling of the game. “After Test matches, we are preparing for T20s as it is totally a different format of the game,” he stated, adding whichever team play well will win the matches.

Pakistan and Scotland will go head-to-head in the first T20 of the two-match series on June 12, and second on June 13.
